Buy My Soul And Call It Art - Raleigh

  • VAE Raleigh 309 West Martin Street Raleigh, NC, 27601 United States (map)

Buy My Soul And Call It Art, is an immersive exhibition that explores the relationship between Black performance and mainstream arts spaces, the emotional labor of Black artists, the importance of Black joy and the connection between the slave market and the arts market.


I dont understand this ticket thing? Why is it every 20 minutes? How long is the actual performance?

This will be an interactive, moving experience. We can accommodate 25 people in a group. Every 20 minutes, up to 25 people will begin the experience. The entire performance will take 1 hour.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

There isn't any explicit adult content but this isnt The Lion King either. If your child enjoys museums or galleries and you are comfortable talking to your child about race, they may enjoy and get something out of this. I would say no one younger than 10.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

There is street parking around the gallery as well as parking decks in walking distance.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
